BLOGATHON… Announcing the Send in the Marines Blogathon


Can you handle a post for the US Marines Blogathon?


Come and join my final blogathon for this year with Dubsism, as my co-host.


Did you know they are Marines?, Pablo Flores

J-Dub from Dubsism invited me to join him in celebrating the 244th anniversary of the United States Marine Corps in a blogathon tribute. So now I’m inviting you to our blogathon to celebrate this with us both. For this blogathon, you can review films, TV Movies or TV Shows about the US Marines. Or any of those movies and TV featuring actors or actresses who have served in the US Marine Corps.

This blogathon will run on the 10 and 11th of November 2019. There are many. many, many films and TV on this subject including A Few Good Men (1992), Battle Los Angeles (2011), The Rock (1996) and Heartbreak Ridge (1986) to name just a few movies. TV Shows include The Pacific (2010).

There’s also lots and lots of wonderful actors and actresses who’ve served in the US Marines. These including Gene Hackman, George C Scott, Bea Arthur, Lee Marvin, Steve McQueen and Scott Glenn. But if you have any ideas for a post – including books, podcasts and other random topics – that you want to run past us, please direct these to my co-host HERE.
